Entrepreneur First (EF) is Europe and Southeast Asia’s leading early-stage investor in frontier technology companies. In just over four years, we have helped the world most ambitious and talented individuals build more than 150 companies, worth over $1.5 billion. In summer 2017, we raised a $12.4m funding round led by Reid Hoffman, Greylock, Founders Fund, Lakestar and some of the world’s best entrepreneurs.
EF now faces its most exciting challenge: scaling to become a globally important institution. In April 2018 we launched our first cohort in Berlin and have established a strong community of talented founders who are already showing impressive results. Our next cohort starts in October and we are now working to get everything up and running to create another batch of high impact companies.
